And I still don't know what audience this would be for, as you found out yourself the thread asking for SDK contributions/adoptions resulted in almost no contributions apart from the font creator which somebody needed to work differently. Frankly I don't have much use for a programmer that needs my assistance to understand the existing code (sans the inevitable few questions), this thread basically contains everything you should need to get going and ask actual implementation questions.
I do not know what happened to the OP “Orfeo Ciano”, but something or someone must have really pissed him off.
So, frankly, and having experienced your team’s overall demeanor towards newcomers who want to contribute to this project and who are still in the learning phase, I doubt that you will ever find yourself in a position where you actually encourage people other than so-called heroes to become involved. Perhaps you should go into yourselves and begin questioning your own ability and knowledge instead of taking for granted that the newcomer’s ability and knowledge is much less than yours. Especially when it comes to motivating people from the outside. The displayed arrogance and ignorance towards external input, and from what I have perceived so far on this forum, is by far worse than what I have experienced on any other forum so far. It is more like a GuildWars in-game chat sort of thingy where everyone is involved in their own private fantasy world and some of which might share their same feable view on that virtual world and shutting out anyone who might be interested in joining as they are not part of the “team”. No wonder most threads on this forum end in frustration and anger, and, initially interested people who were willing to provide new input, leaving and abandoning the project.
And this does not stop there, no, as you are unwilling to provide people with the possibility to provide code in a form that is not diff/patch based. The integration of such patches is difficult as was the case with the Linux project. Hence the invention of the distributed git repository. And subversion does no longer suffice, as it supports you in preventing outside people from contributing, as you may well have noticed.
Do not get me wrong, I will not and do not want to diminish any of you or your team’s personal achievements for the benefit of the project, as these clearly stand for themselves. But it is your “teams” demeanor towards external input and newcomers who would like to contribute that annoys me and you do everything in your power to actually piss people off. I would call that mobbing if you like.
And if you have ever read my question, it was not about the existing code but rather about the idea, and which is not essentially only yours, of how the existing scene composer and other tools could be revamped to make the SDK experience more fluid and less cumbersome.

Personally, you do not want to make use of me and I would not let you to. I want to make use of the JME3 engine and the SDK. And I would like to contribute in order to enhance the SDK. That statement of yours is so full of arrogance and ignorance towards my original and absolutely valid question and attempt to summarize what I think would be my gist of this thread beyond all the noise and rant.
And, frankly, this thread contains bull. It does not even contain any new or even elaborated on ideas except for random noise and a few links to from-the-top-of-my-head side notes posted on the issue tracker and from which no one but the author can make any sense unless they know the code very well.
